Green Lantern: New Guardians #24 Review and *SPOILERS*

Written By: Justin Jordan
Art By: Brad Walker
Cover Price: $2.99
Release Date: October 16, 2013

Lights Out?  Nope, Lights In

Lights Out Pt 3 Oh yeah!  We start this story off with the destruction of Oa.  I miss Oa.

Explain It!:

Well as it seems to be happening in every other title, Hal Jordan is losing his shit.  Hal wants to send the Corps. after Relic, which everyone there knows is a suicide run, and you can tell he's going crazy because he calls Kyle, John.  Nuts.  So after everyone beats some sense into Hal, he decides that their going to go get the Red Lanterns and see how they effect Relic.  

When Suddenly all the entities except Red, and Yellow come out of nowhere, and invade Kyle.  Gross.  What's with Kyle constantly getting invaded by different entities?  I guess he just has that rape face.  So now Kyle is a Uber White Lantern, and is taken over by the entities consciousness, and flies away.  Hal, Carol, The Templar Guardians, and the Corps. try to stop him, but come on even I would know better.  They send the Corps. to Ysmault, because that's where they wanted to go, and Kyle flies off in search of the other entities, to become whole.

But the Templar Guardians showed some power of they're own, and withstood the teleportation attack, and commands the entities to stand down, and release Lantern Rayner.  They fight, and while they do, Kyle fights on the inside until finally he is able to subdue the entities, and take control of his body.

In the end Kyle showboats a little, and talks smack on the Templar Guardians about how he could control all the entities, but they couldn't.  But after that he tells the Templar Guardians that he understands what the entities were trying to do, and that they don't need to defeat Relic they need to help him.

Bits and Pieces:

Oh New Guardians never fails to be a great book.  With so many Lantern titles you might just be asking yourself "What book should I get into?"  Well the answer of course is this one.  I was a little iffy on the whole Lights Out storyline, but after reading this issue, I'm firmly back on board.  Excellent art, and story telling, nothing really at all to say bad about this book.  But since it's a Kyle-centric book you might not feel the size of the other Lantern titles here, but what you do get is a great character that continues to delight.
